PARI BABY masks are designed to make nebulizer treatments easier for children ranging from 1 month to 3+ years in age. Young children have a hard time breathing through their mouth, and the masks help get the treatment into their lungs by offering aerosol to both their mouth and nose. PARI BABY masks are made from soft silicone to conform to your child's face. The included elbow adaptor allows the nebulizer treatment to be given in any position sitting or standing. In fact, if your young child is hesitant toward the treatment, the PARI BABY mask can be used to give him/her a treatment while sleeping. The kit comes with one mask in your choice of size for a child ranging from 1 month to 3+ years of age. This reusable mask is boilable for up to 10 minutes, making it easier to clean than some other masks.

Jet Nebulization Technology
PARI LC® Reusable Nebulizers feature the first ever breath-enhanced jet nebulizer design to efficiently deliver inhalation medicine to your lungs. This PARI Conversion Kit requires the PARI LC® Plus reusable nebulizer to operate.
How It Works:
1. Air from the compressor breaks the liquid medication into small breathable particles which form a mist (aerosol).
2. As you breathe in– the valve at the top opens– letting air in and speeding up the mist generation.
3. When you breathe out, the top valve closes, slowing down the mist and the mouthpiece flap opens letting your breath out.
When breathing in, the inspiratory valve at the top of the nebulizer opens to allow entrained air to increase the flow of medication to the lungs.
When breathing out, the inspiratory valve closes, reducing medication production and thus reducing medication waste. The expiratory valve also opens, directing the breath away from the patients face.

We had the size 1 mask and now have the size 2 mask. It fits my 1-year old perfectly and makes breathing treatments easier. It says it is for ages 1-3, though I’m not sure if it will really fit up to that age based on the current fit. I could be wrong though. If it becomes too small we will try the size 3 or Bubbles the Fish since it has elastic. A note—the size 1 fits pari handsets just fine. With the size 2 you must use the extension (at least for LC and e-rapid) as it is too loose to stay on effectively. This mask is easily sterilized by boiling or steam sterilizer.
This product is perfect
Like other reviews mentioned, the mask is difficult to get onto the elbow compared to the smaller version. It will work though if you push it with your finger from the inside of the mask.
This is perfect for my 15 month old. You have to push the rubber mouth piece past the first flange of the plastic elbow piece to secure it in place.
Good thing about the "elbow" element is ability to turn the mask (the pediatric one) in any direction the child needs. Bad, actually the frustrating thing is that the mask falls off the elbow all the time. I have been upset with this...I ordered this twice (having lost the first elbow and they don't sell the elbow unit separately), so I got upset twice. I will not purchase it again. One great thing about the mask it it is silicone and possibly non-toxic plastic (it also doesn't smell like the other ones).
